Summer Hiatus

Hello all…

This is just a brief post to let you all know I’m still alive and kicking. I had a jam-packed summer and I can’t believe it’s over already. I had the chance to work for a couple of months as a prep cook/pastry cook for one of my favorite restaurants (more on that later), and I visited the UK for two weeks in July (again, more on that later).

At the moment I am spending my days as a student teacher in an 8th grade English classroom. My mornings are early, my days are long, and blogging, unfortunately, has been put on the back burner, so-to-speak. 

Never fear! I’ll get back to it soon. In the meantime, please enjoy a piece I recently wrote for the lovely ladies at COOP

It’s all about quick and delicious (and customizable) weeknight dinners for busy people…more specifically, Huevos Rancheros! Who doesn’t love that? Yum! 

Enjoy!

My Florida Connection via COOP

IMGP3205

I’m thrilled to share with you my second installment at COOP. For this post, I highlighted the many wonderful things I love about Florida. My husband is from the Sunshine State and is responsible for introducing me to crab legs, octopus, Gulf oysters, and sandy beaches; I wanted to pass along those experiences on to my best friend, Sophia. So, over Spring Break she and I spent five days enjoying what the Gulf coast of Florida has to offer. I plan to recreate in my own kitchen some of the dishes we enjoyed over our visit. Think: blackened grouper, fresh briny oysters, crab legs, and a refreshing glass of sangria. My Omaha kitchen will soon be my Florida oasis!


My New Adventure

Guys, I have some super exciting news. The lovely ladies over at COOP have asked me to become their newest food contributor! I couldn’t be more honored or thrilled!  I am lucky to be working with such creative and inspiring women!

My introductory post can be found here.  And many many thanks to Hooton Images for the amazing photographs!  Here are a few of my favorites:
